Additional Research Opportunities Outside of LMU


 Please see below for a few Research Opportunities outside of LMU

  • Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR)

    Interested in presenting your research beyond LMU? Consider applying for the SCCUR Conference, which will be held at Cal Poly Pomona on Saturday, November 18, 2017.

    Applications for SCCUR are due by October 5, 2017.

    More information can be found on the SCCUR website at

    What is SCCUR? SCCUR is broadly multi-disciplinary, including the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and applied sciences. Students present their scholarly work either in 15-minute seminar presentations chaired by faculty moderators (with 3 minutes for Q & A and two minutes to transition to the next talk) or in poster sessions. Students apply to present their work by submitting a proposal in the form of a brief abstract, limited to 300 words. Abstracts are reviewed by faculty from appropriate disciplines at participating institutions and accepted, returned for revision, or declined. Undergraduate students who wish to present their faculty-mentored research or scholarly/creative activity at SCCUR must complete the abstract submission by early October 2017. Students and faculty mentors must also register for the conference.


  • National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)

    Interested in presenting your research beyond LMU? Consider applying for the NCUR Conference, which will be held at the University of Central Oklahoma April 4-7, 2018.

    Applications for NCUR are due by Tuesday, December 5th.

    More information can be found on the NCUR website.

    What is NCUR? The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.
